Cultures and personalities conflict in the melting pot that is Muslim America, and the author deals with these clashes sweetly and gracefully.' - Deborah McNichol, Author and Editor for Muslim Writers Publishing From bestselling educator and author, Umm Juwayriyah (Maryam A. Sullivan), comes a new urban Muslim novel about one American Muslim woman's personal journey through abuse, addiction, family discord, and finding the courage to renew her faith in the Most High, Most Merciful. A teenage Iman Johnson left home over a decade ago to follow behind a street loving hustler who promised her the world. When that world became too much for her to endure, mentally and physically, she found herself back in Pittsburgh, PA at her Muslim mother's doorstep seeking refuge. But will the Muslim family and community that she'd turned her back on years ago be ready to finally accept her or has too much time, emotions, hurt, and secrets built up between them to overcome? Iman will have to find the strength to face her past and relearn the basics if she ever hopes to find the sweetness of faith The Most High promises ... 'Tried & Tested' casts an intimate look into the lives of millions of indigenous Muslim American families and the hardships and blessings that binds them together against the odds. Umm Juwayriyah's unique voice and undeniable characters will not disappoint you. About the Author: Umm Juwayriyah (Maryam A.Sullivan) is a native of Springfield, Massachusetts and is a second generation American Muslim urban educator, business owner, and storyteller.
